Video e Testo: STING – “If It’s Love”

E’ on line il video If It’s Love, nuovo brano di Sting e traccia che anticipa il suo prossimo album, “The Bridge”, in uscita il 19 novembre.

Diretto da Lukas McFarlane e girato al Sadler’s Wells Theatre di Londra e al Theatres De La Ville in Lussemburgo, il video musicale presenta la compagnia di danza di Message In A Bottle, lo spettacolo di teatro-danza acclamato dalla critica dalla candidata al triplo Olivier Award, Kate Prince . 

Con la sua voce, un vero marchio impossibile da non riconoscere, STING guarda all’amore con un approccio differente, semplice, paragonando il suo amore romantico al dover chiamare un medico per raccontare dei suoi sintoni.

Non sono sicuramente il primo cantautore che paragona l’innamoramento o la fine dell’amore con una malattia incurabile e non sarò certo l’ultimo” ha detto STING. “’If It’s Love è il mio contributo a quel modello in cui la metafora dei sintomi, diagnosi e la propria incapacità rendono tutti noi simili tanto da ritrovarci a sorridere mestamente”.

IL TESTO

Jumped out of bed this morning
With a smile upon my face
It’s still there while I shave my chin
But the reason’s hard for me to trace
Cook myself some breakfast
Have some coffee while I muse
Where could this smile have come from?
It’s a muscle that I rarely use
Call the doctor with my symptoms
Should I spend all day in bed?
Can you explain what’s ailing me?
And this is what my doctor said
If it’s love, it has no season
If it’s love, there is no cure
If it’s love, it won’t see reason
And of this you can be sure
If it’s love, you must surrender (you must surrender)
If it’s love that’s turned you ’round (that’s turned you ’round)
If it’s love, the odds are slender (the odds are)
If it’s love, you’re sunk without a trace
One case can bring you down
You smile and your heart skips a beat
You hear a church bell chiming
A sound that’s ringing in your ears
Will set your heartbeat climbing
And my doctor’s diagnosis?
His opinion, and I quote, “I’ll write you a prescription”
And this is what my doctor wrote
If it’s love, it has no season
If it’s love, there is no cure
If it’s love, it won’t see reason
And of this you can be sure
If it’s love, you must surrender (you must surrender)
If it’s love then you must yield
If it’s love, the odds are slender (the odds are)
If it’s love, the trap’s already laid
And I’m afraid your fate is all but sealed
